Tales from the Alhambra

Never was the annihilation of a people more complete than the Morisco-Spaniards. Where are they? A few broken monuments are all that remain to bear witness to their power and dominion. Such is the Alhambra. A Moslem pile in the midst of a Christian land. An elegant momento of a brave, intelligent, and graceful people, who conquered, ruled, flourished, and passed away.
-Washington Irving Tales of the Alhambra

The history is easily studied, but the humanity must be experienced.
